J & K meet OscarPRgirl Erika Bearman

5 Apr
Good morning fashionistas!
The both of us were blessed enough to have the opportunity to meet Erika Bearman aka OscarPRGirl live and in person at her personal appearance this past Tuesday at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St. Both of us are raving fans of Erika and love pretty much everything she does. Erika started off OscarPRgirl when she was approached by CEO Alex Bolen about her blog! They enjoyed the content and thought with social media becoming a strong communication tool, they pitched the idea to Oscar and he loved it, which led to her landing the role of OscarPRgirl.
Erika discussed everything from the social media world and her position as PR director, to all her infamous ‘selfie’ photos wearing Oscar gowns!
Did you know that as the PR director of Oscar de la Renta she receives a clothing package as part of her salary? She even mentioned how Oscar keeps her in check cause all sample pieces are a 24 waist! Haha.
She was so easy going, honest, really approachable and as stunning in person as she is in photos! 🙂
We not only saw her at the event but twice after that! We definitely regret not asking her to go for a drink and continue our conversation from the event. We were cut short because we were truly just having a conversation with her and took a little more time than we expected! (Sorry girls!). We could have talked for hours!
Here are some photos from the event!

J & K at Toronto Fashion Week – Pavoni F/W 2013

4 Apr

It’s our 2nd day at Toronto Fashion Week! We were so excited to hit the tents again, and even more excited to see one of the most anticipated shows of the season – Pavoni Fall 2013. Here’s a bit of a lowdown on Pavoni, for those who just aren’t too familiar with the brand. Pavoni is a fairly new kid to the couture fashion block. Think – Luxe, sophisticated, elegant, sexy, intricate, lace, sheer, embellishment, ballroom, glitter, jeweled, classic, unique..we can go on, but these are just some of the words that come to mind when we think of some of the pieces that Pavoni has created. Absolutely unreal.

Pavoni was an incredible and classic catwalk scene. We definitely wish we had a number of Gala events to attend so we have an excuse to own these beautiful gowns. Hopefully Holt Renfrew will have a trunk show soon so we can see these gowns in person! And maybe try on for fun? 😉

Boyfriend Jean Obsesed

27 Mar

Friends,

I’m well aware that this isn’t a new trend, but I am loving it with a whole new appreciation this time around. I love laid back styles while still looking chic as ever. The boyfriend jean – in my opinion – is the epitome of that. Especially in these cooler times while we wait for the Spring and Summer season to bless us with warmth. There is a perfect boyfriend jean out there for everyone, it just takes a bit of searching and a bit of an open mind. Boyfriend jeans with a loose tee, and Oxford shoes or sneakers are perfect for running errands, throw on some pumps, switch out the top, and you’re ready for drinks with the girls. How do you style your boyfriend jeans?

Cassie for ASOS April 2013

6 Mar

Hey.

So. I (K) kind of love everything r&b singer Cassie is about. I can’t lie, I don’t know where she’s been hiding out music wise; but she seems to be everywhere BUT on the radio. Magazine covers, concerts, club appearances, award shows, front row at fashion shows!?

Who can blame her? This girl’s look is hard to ignore. Not only is she blessed genetically with a beautiful face, and glowing skin, but how about those enviable facial features such as those sexy cat eyes and full lips? Add on a rockin body, great voice and hey, why not shave off the sides of her head for one of the most impressive mohawks we’ve seen since Rihanna circa 2009

Cassie was recently chosen to be featured in the new April issue of ASOS magazine, and I am loving the edgy style Cassie is giving me. Can I buy a jar of this confidence somewhere?cassisasos cassie2 cassie3

March Motivation!

2 Mar

Every day is a chance for a new beginning, but there’s just something about the beginning of the month, isn’t there? March, to me (K) signifies the true coming of Spring. Before you know it, I’ll realize that I haven’t had the need to wear my winter jacket in a week, the salt on my boots will fade, and my gloves will feel rather lonely at the bottom of my purse. I’ll find myself shedding layers, losing the thick knit scarf, and Oh! What is this?! A winter pudge? It’s time to get back in shape ladies. Remember that promise you made to yourself about going back to the gym and eating better? Yeah..that one. Hold yourself to it!

fitjump

There’s a buzz in the air, windows are being filled with bright colors and prints, dresses, skirts, and those super cute skinny jeans; perfect for cuffing on the bottom and rocking that fitted top at Zara you’ve had your eye on. We all know the feeling of not being confident enough to wear something we love because of recent weight gain, or simply not being in the shape you once were. Last year was the first year that I personally was confident enough to wear shorts outside of my bedroom. Spring was rolling around, and I committed to a better lifestyle. No diets. I wanted to get rid of the heavy feeling I had after eating, become more active and lose my muffin top and slim my thighs. I am just under 5 feet tall, so I have a small torso where all my weight tends to gather. Spin classes, weight training, and good ol’ fashioned running helped me to lose 18 pounds. However, the biggest change I made was in my eating habits. No soda. No juice. Much less sugar and dairy products and more vegetables. There are so many healthy alternatives, and while I still indulge in my love of chocolate (which I’ll never give up), a cheeseburger here and there and ice cream. It’s all about balance and being aware of what you’re putting into your body. I still live my life, I just don’t mindlessly eat whatever is placed in front of me – I am conscious of what’s in my food

fitsnacks

Spring into action, and get moving! My take on weight loss and overall health is pretty simple. Move more, eat greens, consume less sugar and salt, and don’t completely deprive yourself of the foods you love. Living a healthy life is it’s own reward. Feeling good inside will always reflect on the outside. You not only feel lighter, but your immune system becomes stronger, you make better decisions, and your stress level is down! Who doesn’t want that? But you do have to work for it, and it isn’t easy; especially in the beginning. If you don’t actually want to change your life and your body, nothing will work. The first step is deciding that you won’t settle for less than what you feel you deserve from your body. Your state of mind must be in shape before your body can get into shape. Take it from the people we watch the most; celebrities! They are people just like you and I, they gain weight and lose weight just like us; but one of the biggest differences between most celebrities and common folk (like me., haha) is that they have a relentless desire to maintain their figures – not only for the obvious reasons such as movie roles, photo shoots, and appearances; but because they feel and perform best when their health is in check and their bodies are at their highest potential.

Powder Puff Event

12 Feb

Lovelies,

I had the pleasure of meeting Emily Weiss from Into The Gloss blog! She was absolutely stunning that night and she is so down to earth and open to everyone!

How did we meet exactly?

Well Holt Renfrew, a leading luxurious fashion specialty department store in Toronto was hosting the Powder Puff event in collaboration with Mercedes Benz. The Powder Puff event was like a beauty parlour for all the beauty fanatics out there!

All guests were introduced to the new launches of Nars and Laura Mercier Spring cosmetic collections, treated to manicures, makeup brush cleansing, oeuvres, consultations by ALL makeup lines such as Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, Cle de Peau, Burberry, Dior, and so on. They were many options! Here are a few photos of all the booths set up!

Holt Renfrew had brought in Emily Weiss as their special guest to talk about all the latest Spring beauty must haves of the season! Lisa Tant, former Flare editor in chief, who is now the Fashion Editor at Holt Renfrew interviewed Emily about all beauty essentials for Spring and Emily spoke about her latest obsessions which are bold brows and bold lip colours!

First Impression – H&M Spring 2013

28 Jan

Happy Monday! Spring is here!

No. It isn’t. I’m sorry about that. We in Canada anyhow, are far from it. Okay..not that far, however it sure does feel that way with the -17 weather we’ve been having lately. I have actually started to feel like a prisoner to my winter jacket – I wake up, I get ready to head out, and I throw on this comforter of a jacket to keep me warm on my commute to the office. I get there, I do my thing, and then I throw the comforter right back on, with gloves, a thick knit scarf, and a beanie to boot! (Yes, it’s THAT cold) I’m proud to say that I’ve taken all the right precautions this season, and have avoided the dreaded cold and flu by keeping warm, eating well and taking vitamin C, however I miss the self-expression! Does anyone know what I mean? I can’t wait to be able to throw on a pair of jeans, a cute top and a blazer, and perhaps a pair of flats! Does anyone remember flats?? Haha……honestly.

Anyhoo, I’ve noticed the new Spring and some of the Summer collection trickling in at H&M, and I wanted to share just a few of my favorite anticipated pieces. Has anyone else already gone out and picked out something for Spring? I know we’re all programmed by now to lust after the pastel shades, flowers, whites, beiges, and the occasional POP of color when Spring rolls around, and will it get tired eventually? Perhaps. But after feeling like a Nona in my feather filled coat day in and day out for 3 months, I can’t wait to rock some of these pieces out. The tassel detailed accessories? That studded vest, and those spring jackets? Yes!

I’m in love with all most of the items from the Spring 2013 collection. I appreciate that H&M has decided to ease into the season by keeping  dark, cool colors such as reds, greens, blues and of course black in a lot of their pieces. This creates a much easier transition from your fall and winter wardrobe into spring and summer; unless of course you’re a big fan of just walking out of your house one sunny day, in an all-pastel concoction as a way of announcing that you have officially left winter behind. (Don’t try this at home)

I’ve even included some of my personal favorites for the boys! That striped-short, baseball cap, sweater combo?? I adore!
